Evie Brown made her first appearance 4 December 2006. She is portrayed by Marji Campi.
Evie is the ex-wife of Bert Atkinson. She makes her first appearance when Bert visits her in a hospice, where she is dying of breast cancer. She tells Bert she still loves him, even though she left him 38 years ago, while he was in prison. She also reveals that her and Bert's daughter had died in 2004, also of breast cancer, and that they have a grandson named Jay Brown. Bert and Pat Evans take her to live temporarily with them in Albert Square. Whilst there, Evie and Bert share a kiss, and she then tells Bert that she wants him to make contact with Jay, and that neither Jay nor Karen Brown knew Bert existed, as she brought Karen up to believe her second husband, George, was Karen's real father. Evie dies in the front room of 31 Albert Square whilst talking to Bert and holding his hand. Bert sits with her for two hours until Pat realises she has died. Her funeral takes place on 14 December 2006.
